Community health center nurses

  1. I am a soon to be new grad and this semester I have discovered the world of community nursing and I am really enjoying it!
    I am interested in applying for a Staff RN position at one of the many Community Health Centers in CT which are non profit federally funded organizations.

    I am unsure of the actual pay difference between an RN working in the hospital setting vs. out in the community in a environment such as a community health center.

    Is the hourly wage significantly different?

    Any one with any insight to the pay difference particularly in New England would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes the pay scale can be dramatically different.

    Regardless, community health nursing can be a wonderful practice!
